  • GitHub repo archtorify

    Transparent proxy through Tor for Arch Linux OS

    Project mention: Alternative for raspberry pi? | | 2021-04-08

    One alternative would be to install a regular linux distro that supports rpi and have all network settings go through the Tor network, e.g. Arch using Archtorify. But that means data is stored on the machine and you lose the whole live OS aspect that you get with Tails. One way round this is to have the OS saved on the SD Card and you can just unplug it when not in use, so it's always in your pocket. Not exactly a live distro but at least it's always in your possession. You could probably encrypt it, too.
